Millennium Operating Regime
A contingency “Plan B” that the UK government put in place in December 1999 to identify, report and if needed, disseminate urgent safety information over the millennium period, in the worst case scenario that the computer geeks were right and the Y2K bug might cause a meltdown of any electronic device with a clock not programmed to recognise the difference between the year 2000 and the year 1900.
Nothing major happened and all the lunatic redneck Americans who’d stockpiled food and ammo in Wyoming bunkers expecting World War 3, sheepishly trickled back down to the low-lands, red-faced…hemming and hawing about how it had made sense at the time.
